Designing a Home Office that Works for You

Design Inspiration, Tips & Trends

They say that seven tenths of life is work, so why not make your home office as stylish and sophisticated as the rest of your home? A well-appointed home office can be both functional and fashion-forward, and the team at Sklar Furnishings can help you create an office that suits your personal style, so you’ll enjoy every hour you spend in it.

First, ask yourself what style you love the most. Are you a techie or a traditionalist? Do you prefer modern furniture, or a more ornate style? Or do you like a fusion of the two?

Once you’ve decided on your style, look at how you want your office to function. How much storage space do you need to keep your office clean and uncluttered? Are there items you want to display? How much desk space do you need? Do you have clients or collaborators come to your home? Do they need workstation space or comfortable meeting space, or both?

Work Your Magic
Because this is your space, there really are no fixed rules. Keep it calm and neutral or add pops of energizing colors. Use inviting textures or sleek, smooth steel and leather finishes. Choose compact desks to save space or make a big statement with a large, dramatic console.

From ergonomic office chairs, designer desks, storage consoles and shelving, Sklar sources modern office furniture from around the world to bring home your personal style, and make your home office beautifully well organized.

Our BDI line has some sleek new modern furniture that is both functional and fashionable. Our team of preeminent designers has created lines of home office furnishings that are always on trend and ahead of the curve.

Make it Mobile
Many of BDI’s new lines of office desks have retractable wheels so you can reconfigure your home office to suit more or fewer collaborators, or open up a space to create a comfortable client meeting area. For an elegant, contemporary work desk, the BDI Cascadia Console and Laptop Station shines, with sleek steel legs and a real wood surface. The full-length soft-closing storage drawer stores paperwork or laptops seamlessly, and retention slots keep unsightly wires out of sight. The Cascadia desk comes in six luxuriant wood stains from espresso to stained oak and white, to compliment any stylish office design.

Work Anywhere on a Bink
Move your laptop or tablet station from meeting room to poolside patio in a breeze with BDI’s Bink Mobile Media Table. With its curved, contoured lines, Bink is available in Mineral, Pepper, Salt or Cayenne – shades that will spice up any modern office space.

A Case for Reading
From artisan-inspired sawhorse bookshelves, colorful floating shelves or rich wood built-ins, Sklar has the perfect configuration to showcase your favorite books and collections. Or work with the expert Sklar furniture designers and carpenters to have a custom bookshelf made to your exact specifications.

Brilliant Idea
The right lighting can create an intimate corner, brighten up a room, or add drama and excitement. Layers of light – some high, some lower – can change the focus in a room, with the flick of a switch.

Sklar’s office lighting selections are nothing short of illuminating.
From streamlined tubular desk lamps to lightning bolt wall sculptures and Florentine teardrop chandeliers, our lighting fixtures can create functional workspaces and works of art alike. Whether you choose sleek, modern furniture or pieces with ornate pizzazz, have fun designing, and visit our Office Inspirations page for more ideas on making your workspace a true reflection of your personal style.
